I concur the lack of seeds in a roma stops the chance of your sauce tasting bitter.

Funny, it isn't so much that I don't like Romas, just that my in couple of years of experimentation, I simply didn't find them that much better than the grocery store ones I can get year round at the grocery. Ditto cherry and grape tomatoes -- to me they're the only tomatoes that taste good during the winter, so why waste energy and space? I now grow early girls and I can't remember if it is a better boy or big boy. The former give me tomatoes before anyone in the area (including friends with farms and green houses); they're small, but still large enough to slice for a sandwich and are delicious. The girls give me early tomatoes, the boys extend the season in late summer/fall (depending on frost).

Alas, my maters did not have near the flavor as in previous years. Weather was too hot. The cherry toms taste pretty good, but my Early Girls and Better Boys taste much better roasted. They aren't bad, just not as good as they could be. Plus the early blight got 'em, so lost a few to sunscald.

my grape tomatoes blow away anything that i've ever bought in a store, or even at a farm stand. they are so sweet with a ton of tomato flavour. i started growing them because it was easy for little fingers to enjoy picking and eating on the spot. and they produce a lot for all of the neighbor's kids as well. but now i grow them as if i could grow candy.

You could make penne with roasted tomatos. I'm actually having this tonight, all you do is cut them in half, drizzle w/oil, some oregano, S&P, and roast until slightly blackened on the edges. Then saute some garlic and onion until transluscent, add the tomatos, and crush them until it becomes a light sauce. Then just add your pasta. Delish!
